  1. Looking over the schedule, it looks like our girls and the Crochet Me team will be airing Aug 7; 10:30 am. (Check your listings).






    Reminder August 7, 2006

    Contemporary Crochet Home Decor - Episode DUCT-116





    Is this the first showing of the “Girls†(lol hey I’m an old guy) visit to Uncommon Threads?

    I think Donna said there were two episodes?

  2. That is just beyond … well I don’t know exactly what… but it is definitely beyond something…but coming from your creative :idea mind not a surprise.:sofunny .:clap



    Every once and awhile since the human experience, (or experiment lol), has started along comes a creative :artist “Anomaly†and I feel you are that for your generation. :fame



    And what a mom you are, tell your daughter that that picture has just created more unforgettable memories for her that surely some day she will be telling her grandkids Something like around the year 2066


    “I remember one time back in “06†my mother asked me to model a big piece of crafted bacon. Why you ask? Well it’s just part of a very long story. But you can ask her yourself… she is in the studio designing :knitsomething :cturkey new, and by the way take this camera with you lol "

  3. My Happy Care Bearth_JohnsHappyCareBear3.gif(clickable)


    Why I’m a Happy Care Bear

    I’m mostly fudge brown hmmmm yummy

    I’m one of a kind

    I’m well stuffed

    I’m crocheted in thread by Tampa Doll

    I’m going to sit next to Grumpy and just be happy lol


    Here I am with my eyelashes added ;)





    Now off to find my (DW) Grumpy Care Bear :P

  4. I do like my desk toys :P of which Mary Jo keeps me well supplied. But I have asked only one requirement for my “Happyâ€:D Care Bear and it must have a manly :boxcolor:slingshot of dark brown for the body. :lol lol


    I’m patiently waiting :emptymail as I was told dark brown in thread #10 is hard to get, but I see a package has arrived. :mail

  5. Very Nice :clap


    I remember back, way back, when I was in 2nd grade we made as a class project mother’s day paper flowers made from craft paper. I’m sure it was a wonder to behold but of course as Moms do it was her favorite. lol


    I like when a crochet crafter looks at a pattern and sees something attractive and appealing, and then they look in into their imaginative artistry and see an added touch that makes it unique and one of a kind .

    I’m sure your mom will like that personal touch of yourself you added to her gift. :)

  6. Isnt is nice that Mary Jo's hubby is so involved in her crochet work and her forum? Wow. That was brilliant, thanks for sharing her work with her crochet friends.



    Why thanks for that complement lol


    Actually I like to help Mary Jo with the computer forum access and picture stuff as she does not like to do those types of activities.


    I have learned that when she is happy I’m happy and when she is upset I’m upset. We have learned to help each other and get involved in each others hobbies. She became a Ham Operator (N2AJG) because Amateur Radio was one of my hobbies.

    (WA2VHR) Now she doesn’t smoke cigars but she does go into the cigar stores with me, :D When people are happy, giving, trusting and loving you can reach 35 years together. ;)

  7. Congrats on your first. :clap Who cares if you think it is ugly or you made up parts. That is why it makes it yours.



    I think we all have at times either missed a part, made up a part, or just thought it was ugly when it was done.:D

    This is Tampa Doll talking. Forgot to log out Tampa Guy. Will do so now.:hook

  8. 1Snail.jpgspacer1x1.gif/QUOTE]


    First I must say I like the snail, :clap as in that form it is transposed into a cute

    little critter not scary at all, but I don’t have any childhood trauma associated

    with snails :eek lol (other things maybe:think )



    It should provide the therapeutic affect for your daughter that you are wishing

    for. It truly shows that eternal motherly instinct you have to continue to

    nurture her, and follow her, through out and well into her adulthood. :hug




    You still like to scare the bee jesus out of her :eek lol ;)


    Also it is clearly seen that Angela - (Ah Leah) is her mother’s daughter :lol

  9. Great story, :clap great pictures, :clap great presentation, :clap great work, and also great teenager :P

    Why a great teenager well inspiration, :think it’s obvious he provide the inspiration to motivate you into a response, :eek and you could have strangled :( or hugged him :hug with more crocheted :hook creativity I think you chose well :) lol

  10. Mary Jo wanted to wait, but I'm posting this for her now as I want to show off Sassy & Maddy :D

    Last October 2005 for the silent auction I bid on and won the sock monkey basket. Well


    out of it came Mr. Sock’s smoking his cigar th_SocksDressedwithCigar.gif




    I bought some additional yarn supplies as Mr. Socks quickly expressed concerns that he would like a companion Blossomth_Ms.gif




    Then came along Ms.Crochetville who then went off to the 2006 silent auction to look for a nice home and companion MsCrochetville.gif




    Following quickly behind appeared the Sock Sisters, Sassy and Maddy, who will be traveling up to Jersey with their special playmates Sidney & Madison






    Alas it will just be Mr. Socks and Blossom left to enjoy Spring Break unless another


    Monkey appears. We will just have to wait and see lol

  11. I like it... looks good :clap


    Mary Jo doesn’t like to wear hats she thinks they make her look funny, but I like to see women in all kinds of neat hats. We were at the mall one day and a whole group of Ladies came in wearing these Red Hats (Red Hat Society) and I was mesmerized. :P lol

  12. Thanks for the help, with that and after 20 minutes of brain storming we figured it out It isn’t easy to brain storm with a half Irish and half Polish person as you never really know who you are dealing with with. Once we realize where the markers went it was only a matter convincing someone that the seam seemed to go this away. lol

    Mary Jo is happily crocheting :hook away in the other room. As I am posting this for her mainly because her knee was bugging her and all I was hearing as hobble, hobble, darn it, crochet, crochet, hobble, hobble, darn it lol
